This is the story of the Didgeridoo in its natural surrounds.
Nestled in amongst the trees of its home like the Wooly Butt and the Grey Box, you can see its place, but you can also see its purpose to be selected and honed into one of the oldest instruments in the world. To breathe sound and music into a tree and not alter any of its structure shows the close connection of humans needing to be close to nature but also a desire to get creative.
I love playing the Yidaki (Didge), and my favorite place is probably on my deck at home, but I have enjoyed performing all over the world for many people.
